The Indiana Hoosiers have just about completed renovations on its iconic Assembly Hall.
Originally opened in 1971, the Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall had fallen into some disrepair and needed to be have its electrical and plumbing problems addressed. The renovation looks great, keeping the old but bringing in the new is the theme for the Hoosiers in their renovation.

It does have a very new/old look to it which was intentional.
Among the renovations are:
A new atrium and new club-level amenities, newly replaced seats, the Mark Cuban Center for Sports Media and Technology, a new scoreboard 500 square feet larger than its predecessor and 128 additional urinals and toilets installed throughout the building. The old scoreboard has been cut in half and placed at either side of the south atrium. On gamedays, the scoreboard will be fully operational. There are a number of touch screens throughout that allow visitors to scroll through the annals of Hoosier basketball.
The renovations look great and are sure to attract a wave of talent to a competitive program with a great team culture.
